Wacom update: This will be my last update until the cable arrives (if it ever does). The situation at the moment is that I'm using my Surface, which is designed to work with its own pen (but can't because the pen isn't available in Canada until July 20), and an entry-level Wacom tablet to edit comics. This would be an okay solution except for one fun little Wacom quirk: the pen tends to lose its pressure sensitivity frequently, forcing me to shut down and reload Photoshop. Sometimes the presure sensitivity remains intact for half an hour or so; sometimes it lasts for three seconds. Yesterday, in a forty-minute session, I had to reload Photoshop seven or eight times. This is a problem I had with the higher-end Wacom tablet on my other Windows 10 computer as well. On my Windows 7 computer, just shutting down Photoshop wouldn't work; I would have to reboot the computer, at which point I would be informed that the tablet driver wasn't running, and I would have to reboot again...and again...and again...and again (sometimes up to thirty times). The funny thing is that I had way fewer problems back in the day when I was using my tablet with Windowx XP. The Wacom driver was less advanced ten years ago, but it also actually worked.

Gosh, I hope the Surface pen is awesome.

Panel 1: Rose and Iz are still sitting on a little wall in the park.

Rose: There are some consequences to time travel. I actually wanted to talk to you about that.

Panel 2:

Rose: What do you think I should do about Kristi? I mean, I know where--when--her brother is. Is it fair not to tell her?

Panel 3: Iz stares, his mouth open and one finger up.

Panel 4:

Rose: I take it that's an "I'm not prepared to discuss ethical dilemmas today."

Iz: How did you know?
